    Well guys, it finally happened...I finally went insane and did the finish I've been wanting in a guitar for years now; Purple/Pink/White camo. I needed a good test subject, so naturally I bought a new E-II Eclipse in vintage black. I have about 12 hours of work into this finish, each piece of this vinyl graphic I hand cut and placed to make this camo pattern. For now I only have the top, headstock and sides done, haven't decided if I want to put the time into the back yet. Enjoy the pic, let me know what you think!

    Really awesome look. Suprised I like it only because I think vintage black Eclipse is just the most on point guitar around. Well done!!

    For the record...I got the idea from Stephen Carpenter. I saw a pic ESP posted a couple years back of a custom shop SC they made him in that finish and i thought it was the coolest thing ever

    Is everyone else seeing much of anything? Or just a bunch of ginormous, DOS game sized pixels like me?
